You will have a case to answer if a teenage is found pregnant in your area, Matungu MP Justus Murunga has told chiefs and village administrators in Matungu Constituency.
This is following the rampant cases of teenage pregnancies in Matungu Constituency.
Mr Murunga was speaking today at Matungu CDF grounds in Kakamega County while issuing cheques donated to 162 Women groups in his Sub-County.
According to a local report seen by Wakajuanes.Com, Matungu Constituency leads in teenage pregnancies with a monthly average of 633 new cases in Kakamega County.
The seemingly agitated Murunga then placed the ball into the feet of chiefs and village heads and warned them of dire consequences in case of any new cases.
“Even as we fight the war against teenage pregnancies, I want to tell the chiefs and village administrators here that if I find a new case of teenage pregnancy in your location, you will have to carry that burden, I don’t know how, but you will.” Murunga said.
“We cannot continue watching our young girls drop out of schools because we have lazy people who don’t want to have a better society.”
Mr Murunga also didsmissed the suggestion by Bungoma Governor Wyclife Wangamati challenging the MPs to come up with new punitive laws to curb teenage pregnancies.
“The proposal by the Governor is unfortunate and unnecessary. We already have laws, why should we need more laws to curb teenage pregnancies? He asked.
“The only thing now is to reinforce these laws and remain vigilant to bring sanity the same way we have seen sanity back on our roads.”
Still on education, the first time MP promised full scholarships to all the needy children who scored above 400 marks in this year’s K.C.P. and declared war against men impregnating school children.
“As your MP, I will give scholarships to all the needy students who scored above 400 marks. But as we do that, these enemies of development who sleep with school children to pull us back. I insist, I have declared a total war on you. You will not like it.” Murunga added while addressing journalists before proceeding to the main meeting.
The MP also confirmed that Matungu Constituency will have the privilege of having a first ever university branch after a Bungoma-based Kibabii University agreed to the request.
“We have talked to Kibabii University and they have agreed to build a campus on our soil. Our children will not have to travel to other towns to study.”
The MP promised more projects and asked his opponents to embrace development instead of plotting violence every time.
